  • The Ant and The Whale
    A Mountain Journal Short - Personal stories for the love of outdoors. Based on a conversation with Ian Almond. Dom Bush has been making films for us over the last 4 or more years and what links many of these films is that they are not showy, if anything verging on the understated, but where the individuals story speaks loud. We caught up with him about the film and why this style is still very important. (Parental Advisory! Please be aware that a couple of naughty words slip out during this film)
